For 3o years, I have had and still have copy of this book.I have tried many of the recipes and generally speaking they are excellent.The beef vindaloo was quite different to anything that I have tried in either the UK or India,where I lived for 5 years.The marination in vinegar & spices, ensured the most tender meat.THe final outcome produced a very dry meat curry,with the cooked spices adhering to the cooked flesh.These meat morsels could be picked up in the fingers and eaten.The flavour of the final meat was both tender,tasteful and incredibly spicy and hot.This is most definitely the curry for lovers of hot and spicy curries, eaten with the appropriate Indian breads.
